Modelling ice sheets and glaciers (including Arne Richter Arne Richter Award for Outstanding Young Scientists Lecture)
Conveners: Frank Pattyn , Eric Larour  | Co-Conveners: Gael Durand , Guðfinna Aðalgeirsdóttir , Patrick Heimbach , Olivier Gagliardini , Robert Arthern

 / Attendance Wed, 10 Apr, 17:30–19:00  / Blue Posters

This session is intended to attract a broad range of ice-sheet and glacier modelling contributions, welcoming applied and theoretical contributions. Theoretical topics that are encouraged are higher-order mechanical models, data inversion and assimilation, representation of other earth sub-systems in ice-sheet models, and the incorporation of basal processes and novel constitutive relationships in these models.

Applications of newer modelling themes to ice-sheets and glaciers past and present are particularly encouraged, in particular those considering ice streams, rapid change, grounding line motion and ice-sheet model intercomparisons.
